Summary
History hinged on a call as the German high command waited for Hitler's order to invade Czechoslovakia. That was the signal that would launch their revolt to bring down the Reich. Every detail of the coup was in place. Access roads to Berlin would be blocked. The city sealed. Communication centers taken. A commando squad--sixtyhand-picked men--were ready to storm the Chancellery and seize Hitler. The only open question: to try Hitler as a traitor or execute him on the spot. Sins of the Fathers is the eye-opening novel--based on historical facts--of the efforts of German military leaders, career civil servants, and clergy to solicit England's assistance to bring down the tyrant in 1938. When Prime Minster Neville Chamberlain refused to meet with them, they turned to Winston Churchill, who secretly supported their cause. Armed with a strongly worded letter from the future prime minister, they waited for Hitler's telephone call ordering German troops to invade Czechoslovakia--the signal for their uprising. But the call did not come. Instead, Prime Minister Chamberlain went to Hitler's apartment in Munich only to bow to the dictator's will. The invasion was over before it began--and with that, so was the coup. Flying home, Chamberlain announced he had obtained "peace for our times." Sins of the Fathers--the sequel to Wolf about Hitler's rise to power--tells the dramatic true story of the foolish prime minister that undermined the coup to topple the regime, delivered Czechoslovakia to Hitler, saved the Fuhrer's life, and paved the road to World War II
